K is for Kids

When I was young, I wanted to have a big family, since I was the middle child of five kids, I thought having a lot of kids would be fun! Yea, don’t know what I was thinking. For the fact all the kids after Hailey were “surprise” babies.. haha Wonderful surprises at that! I wanted to do the whole “trending way” of things.. You know, 1) collage 2) marriage 3) kids — But yeah. More like 1) get pregnant senior year 2) marriage 3) have 3 more kids 4) college?!?!?  Yea but. They’re the best things that happened to me. They have kept me alive, when I was at my lowest lows, my kids were there and kept me going. I am truly blessed with  the best. I feel honored to be their mom!

  1. Babies certainly do change our lives, but they are such blessings. I’m sure you love them very much and I wish you and your family the very best for your futures.

  2. Kids are the greatest, planned or not they truly do change our lives!! And it’s never too late for college!

  3. I have a daughter and I think I’m done with kids now 😀 But you never know what the future brings.

    And you should be! Life is so wonderful because of you – and those photo shows it all!

  5. Oh when the right time to have one comes along, I will truly understand all of this. But for now, I am happy with my nieces. They bring sunshine to my life. They make everything gray to colorful.

  6. It’s such a rewarding role in life. Thank you for sharing with is!

  7. oh Natalie! the scenario with me.. college, pregnancy, 3 more kids! hahah I am actually thinking of going back to school but there is no way I can do that with 4 kids haha a few more years maybe 🙂

    • That’s what I figured.. I’m in no rush to go to school now, I’ll go when all the kids are in school.. then again at that point, I could sleep, haha.. the choices I have.. I have another 4 years to think about it, though.

  8. Oh my goodness, what a bunch of cuties. You are truly blessed! Your plans were different than God’s plans, and His plans look pretty great for your life! 🙂

  9. I am still single but I do know the feelings of having your own babies/kids, I have been a parents for my younger siblings and seeing them grow up is the greatest achievement in life that I can be truly proud of. I wish you and your family to have a great future.
